ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Due to anticipated weather conditions throughout the weekend of December 20, 2013 thru December 22, 2013, the Director of Public Works has declared a “Snow Emergency” for the City of Rockford beginning at 12:00 PM Saturday, December 21, 2013.

The Odd/Even parking ordinance will be placed in effect at that time and citizens will be required to follow this protocol or move their vehicles off the street until further notice.

Updates to current and future snow operations will be provided throughout the weekend as weather conditions evolve.

Police will issue parking tickets at the cost of $50.00 to vehicles that are parked on the wrong side of the street. It’s safe to assume that if it’s snowing the Odd/Even Parking is in effect.

Important Points to Remember:

-If your street is marked as “No Parking” on one side of the street, the Snow Emergency Declaration allows you to park legally in the restricted area during the time that the Snow Emergency Declaration is in effect.

-Do not assume that you can move your car when the street is plowed. Your car must remain parked appropriately until after the Snow Emergency has been lifted.
